Horse Cheese


September 1st, 2010

Horse Cheese (Caciocavallo) is actually a cheese made from cow’s or sheep’s milk. Caciocavallo comes from Sicily and has a characteristic tear-drop shape. The cheese has a hard edible rind and a soft creamy centre. I was told, in Wild Caper, where I bought it, that it’s called horse cheese because it used to be carried down from mountain villages by horse.

I noticed today, at Islington Farmers’ Market, that the Alham Wood Farm cheese stall has their own, Somerset made, horse cheese. They have a stall in most London farmers’ markets, though it may be on a 3 week rotation basis.
